    Let them all spend time in prison if they're convicted, and lose a lot of civil rights they previously took for granted. Idiots.

    The linked article was from 2015. I read some more recent stuff and I am not sure anyone was charged. I am not defending them, but apparently they were running a legal police sting operation with help from the feds. The money was kept under asset forfeiture laws. The fact that the money was also "enjoyed" by some of the officers living the high life was just bad management, not necessarily a crime.

    Civil asset forfeiture is a real problem in our legal system. It provides a motive for LE agencies to do operations just to get the assets. There are eight states that don't allow it and there have been some moves made to make it illegal in all states, but it hasn't happened yet.

    The asset forfeiture laws are in need of changing. There is far too much freedom with them in many states. Mine included unless I missed a recent law being passed to change that.

    We've seen a lot of these lately - articles which are several years old, recirculated on the net and posted as new news. A reminder to all - it's worth a few minutes to check the dates on articles, and assess whether there age puts them into the "stale news" category with minimal value here.

    Notice...I qualified this with "IDK"...that means I don't know.

    Also, the timeliness of a report does not necessarily qualify or disqualify legitimacy...remember, we constantly refer to what politicians have done or were though to have done years prior...Po Po should not be held to a different standard.
